This family film from Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous) is based on the amazing autobiographical memoirs of Benjamin Mee, which were chronicled in the BBC series Ben’s Zoo. A widower (Damon) wants a fresh start for him and his two children following the death of his wife. When he finds a house in the country that comes with its very own zoo, the family decide to work towards returning the dilapidated zoo to its former wonder and glory. Featuring a score by Jonsi Birgisson (Sigur Ros), and some stunning cinematography from Rodrigo Prieto (Brokeback Mountain, Babel), this is a well-crafted, heart-warming tale.
